On Thursday 27th July 2017, Forever Manchester presented Tony Walsh “the poet who defined a city, with a poem that inspired the world” in a very special evening of performance poetry sponsored by OPUS 4 at Manchester’s legendary Frog and Bucket.

The event raised £3,100 with all proceeds helping Forever Manchester to fund and support community activity across the Greater Manchester area and we hope you enjoy this special recording of ‘An Evening with Tony Walsh’.

PLEASE NOTE: This podcast contains material of an adult nature!

Over 60 creatives from Manchester, including Peter Saville and Malcolm Garret, collaborated with Tony Walsh to turn his ‘This Is the Place’ poem into a book. The book has been released and is now available to the public. Listen to the interview with the man behind the project, and find out where you can purchase the book, here.
